Honestly, I could not even watch the two of them in those Halloween outfits. Geez, is it really so hard to wear something that isn't hideous?
Venus' dress looked very heavy. I noticed this in some of the dresses. All the weight of all the frills and doodads can be felt at the bottom of the cress. I would imagine that a player would resent that extra weight after 3 hours of serious tennis.
The other thing I have decided is that Serena cannot possibly be wearing off-the-rack Nike dresses; her dresses must be custom made. The Nikes I have tried are very tight in the torso in size medium. I would imagine even an XL would come nowhere close to fitting Serena.
Dementieva, OTOH, might be wearing off the rack Yonnex. I say that because I've seen pics of her in the two Yonnex dresses I bought. Now, she is a big woman (did anyone see the Tennis Channel instructional episode where she is standing next to her coach and she dwarfs him?). The dresses are crazy-short on her but seem a good length on me.
